Beach Weddings

Yes, your dream beach wedding can become a reality in Georgia’s Golden Isles! Be sure to check tide charts as you look at specific dates. Our tides change twice a day and can vary by as much as 8 feet. Pro tip: There’s minimal breeze at low tide and steady breeze at high tide.

St. Simons Island’s beaches don’t require reservations, but please be aware they are public beaches. Parking lots and pathways should not be obstructed.

If your heart is set on an oceanside ceremony on one of Jekyll Island’s beaches or outdoor spaces, you’ll need to contact the Jekyll Island Authority by calling 912-635-6400 or emailing
